    Think about all the awesome movies you've seen, are there any individual scenes that that have burned themselves into your brain because they're THAT good?

    I'll never forget the first time I saw Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke in the 1962 movie "The Miracle Worker":

      The opening scene of The Godfather. I like how the broken Bonasera pours his heart out to Don Corleone. And the Don taking his job seriously by wanting respect for a request.

        "Hey Godfather, is the Two for One Summer Special offer still good?"

        OK Crow, I'll show the old man some respect, lol. Nice clip!

        The first time I saw "Dr. Strangelove" it was the most unusual mix of funny and dark, a little above my head at the time.

        But oh how I love the interaction between Peter Sellers and George C. Scott:

          And thanks for showing that Miracle Worker clip, edd. They used to show that film to us in 9th grade literature. That girl was so helpless, wasn't she?

          This is the scene from Batman (1989) where The Joker is introduced.



          Here, we see Jack Nicholson's transformation and an act of vengeance. All before The Joken could rule his criminal empire.

            Crow, you have made my day.

            It's movie magic when you see two Hollywood Legends like Jack Palance and Jack Nicholson together in the same film - What A Scene!


            OK, now I have something truly uplifting . . . Bette Davis serves Joan Crawford a deep-fried RAT, original receipe:

              The ending scene to Gone With the End. Rhett says his goodbye, but Scarlett doesn't want him to leave. She actually has romantic feelings for him.

                Ya know, I was just thinking about "Gone with the Wind" just the other day. 1939 was an outstanding year for movies. To this day "Gone with the Wind" remains the biggest box office film of all time!

                What makes that scene work for me is when Vivien Leigh says, "tomorrow is another day". As a response, it has become as famous as Clark Gable's line.


                I'm gonna do a 2-fer.

                "The Dead Pool" is the 5th and final film in the "Dirty Harry" franchise, released in 1988. While I enjoy the movie it has not been popular with Clint Eastwood fans. Many complain that "Dead Pool" is too cartoony, especially the toy car chase scene.

                Oh well, I still get a kick when Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan has a bit-o-fun with prisoner Hicks in this scene, at prisoner Janero's expense. Did you know that smoking can cause cancer?

                And here is that toy car chase scene I mentioned earlier.
                Do you remember how it ends?

                  An image of George C. Scott doing George S. Patton's infamous speech from the 1970 movie Patton.



                  Who DIDN'T make a parody of this?

                    I have to admit, Patton has one of the most memorable opening scenes in all of cinema. And the rest of the film rocks too.


                    Lately, I've been thinking about Westworld from 1973.

                    Years ago I told some friends that Yul Brynner will go down in history as the first Terminator. Betcha there's a lot of agreement around the web nowadays to back me up.

                    Before Star Wars, Westworld was one of the most talked about films from back in my high school days. It still has a great plot - a futuristic theme park for adults is staffed by androids controlled from a central operations room. A good time is had by all, until a software glitch causes the androids to go "off-script" and start killing the park visitors!

                    Yul Brynner stole the show, but this was also Richard Benjamin's best role, imo. Here is my favorite scene where Richard's character hides in plain sight, with a little surprise for Yul's T1-like persona:

                      Awesome scene. I still think that Jack's Joker was better than Ledger's.

                          I agree with you there.

                          Just about any scene from Terminator 2 can really capture one's imagination.

                            I'm still a big fan of Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" from 1956. Oh lordy what amazing romp of a film, with an all star cast. Love seeing Charlton Heston mix it up with Yul Brynner.

                            I think the best part of this "Let My People Go" scene is at the very end when Mr. Heston picks up the snake and it turns back into a staff while he's holding it. Not too shabby given special effects at the time.

                                I pissed myself laughing the first time I saw this scene.

                                  Absolutely one of the most magnificent movies ever made. The chariot race scene begins with the parade around the track, just to show-off the scale of the setting.

                                  When Messala's, played by Stephen Boyd, chariot collapses and he's dragged by his horse team I was sure he would let go in time to get off the race course before the other chariots close in on him. But Messala hangs on, even when he is being trampled by the following team of horses!

                                  What A Scene Crow.

                                      Love that movie. It was like Jurassic Park meets Terminator. Also, are you sure that Richard Benjamin's best role wasn't Saturday The 14th? LOL
